Reply To: Aberdeen to introduce £1 drop-off fee

Back to Forum



“Is it also nuts to have to pay overnight parking in a hotel car park, especially when street parking incurs a parking fine…?”

I agree Martyn, the hotel clearly has to pay for the upkeep & business rates for the parking area and VAT on the £1. Likely they would be financially better off by just upping the room rate by a quid and make it free parking. They might even save on the NNDR (non domestic rates). However, it is a business and supplying parking costs money so they need to recoup it.

The hotel you refer to……do they charge a drop off fee, and if yes do you support it?

Edit…….bad day at work… turn to be curmudgeonly!
